Dinner Conversations

It’s never too early to have this conversation with your teen/ tween!

As adults we know that it is never too early to have a conversation about “What do you want to be when you are grown up”.  This conversation is not so much about how useful it is or for how accurate the answers are, but it opens up your child’s mind to possibilities and tells you how they are thinking about jobs and careers. Start a dinner table conversation with your child today about what they want to be when they are grown up!
